Trump says looking into extending protected status for Bahamas immigrants after storm

U.S. President Donald Trump on Monday (September 9) said his administration is talking to a lot of people about possibly extending temporary protected status, granted to people who cannot safely return to their countries, to immigrants from the hurricane-hit Bahamas.

But Trump, talking to reporters at the White House, said the United States must be careful and make sure immigrants from Bahamas are properly documented.

A growing number of lawmakers are pushing the White House to suspend visa requirements to help reunite Bahamians stranded by Hurricane Dorian’s destruction with their U.S. relatives.

Trump’s administration has sought to severely restrict legal and illegal immigration.
